A Photo A Week Challenge: Motion

Run, Walk, Play

Cindy loved to play fetch until arthritis set in a couple of years ago.

Run Cindy Run!

The Guide Dogs in training enjoyed the walk.

I used to enjoy going to watch cricket at Bellerive Oval in Hobart and one of my favourite things to do was to photograph the players. I was especially pleased when I managed to capture some action.

One of the few occasions I’ve captured the ball leaving the bat.

I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.


    • Thanks Marilyn. Yes that is a cricket ball and I was really pleased to be able to get that shot as my reflexes are not all that fast. I always preferred taking photos of the players in action rather than the posed photos that they used to do with fans. I was always too shy to ask anyway.
